New brakes making noise

I just installed new pads and rotors today. I took it for a test drive and a little into the drive I heard a grinding noise. And then in my driveway I stopped quick and heard a clunk. Maybe the caliper moved forward? I know I tightened everything up. Do I need a brake in period?

Bump anyone?

I am taking my fronts off right now and re setting the pads again. Thinking I might not have reset the caliper all the way. And making sure all bolts are tight. Then I'll check the back. I am rotating the tire by hand too to make sure no noise is present

Did you clean and lubricate the pad slides? (Remove the metal click in shims and clean under them as well, they can build up dirt/dust an corrosion and cause brake drag

I cleaned under them but didn't lube them. They seemed fine. So it's the brake pads not sliding back to away from the rotor? Will this fix itself?

The brake pads will wear quicker if they can't be fully released. I recommend cleaning both sides of the anti rattle clips (what the pads sit on) and lubricating the slides, that way when pressure from the caliper is released the pads won't stay applied.

I actually figured it out the other day. Forgot to post back. Basically I had to just adjust my parking brake because that was what was rubbing not the pads.
